A remake sometime could't equal or surpass the original one. One thing I could assure you is that this remake definitely giving a new modification to the original. This remake does not has much episode and one episode equivalent to 45 mins each. I could not get enough of this!

A moderate teacher does not really a good match with A nasty man with an affluent background. BUT, this drama challenge the read more social acceptance. Both boldly admit they won't fall heels over head with one other. Love comes not at the right time but destiny and grandfather effort give them a chance to know one another.

I assure you this worth of your time in front of the computer!

I totally agree with everyone giving this a perfect 10 rating because this is PERFECTION! Good thing I have never seen the original version which will make me give an unbiased review for this one.

The story is so simple that it looks so cliche but the writing is so direct,straight forward and just sticking to the plot which is just a simple lovestory of two opposite individuals! No angst of third read more party / mother in law /noble idiocy / misunderstanding. The tone and mode of being light, funny, sweet and romantic is consistent through and through! There are no dull episodes, everything just fall in complete heart rendering moments, true to its premise and promise of a pure rom-com!

The character development of two leads is way perfect! You dont feel any rush or force scene in the loveline, the progression just happen so naturally! The leads are explosive, their chemistry is off chart that you cannot really distinguish if they are just acting or the feelings are real! The actors just played their characters excellently and brilliantly! They are so believable and relatable! Bravo for the 2 actors!

The music is perfect I love it! It makes me fall in love more with the characters and the story! It gives a loving vibes to a lovely and endearing drama already! Feel good music perfect for a feel good drama!

I will surely love rewatching this again and again! This will probably my most rewatched drama after Healer!

I have never crossed a very fun, amazing, light hearted drama recently! IF you are a romcom hooker, you should not miss this once in a blue-moon kind of experience in drama watching -- it will simply delight you!

Both dramas focus on the contract relationship trope. They give off a similar feeling. Both very lighthearted and fun to watch. Nice chemistry between the leads and some very nice kissing scenes.
I watched "Marriage, not dating" some time ago and I've been looking for a drama with a similar feeling since then, "Something About 1 Percent" met my expectations perfectly, even though I enjoyed the later a bit more.

Both dramas are really sweet and short. They both leave you with a smile at the end of each episode.

    I still love this. It's so stressless. You just watch and enjoy and it contains more romance and cuteness than a lot of other long time running romance dramas.

    A very good drama, it was lighthearted, not much drama happening, but still didn't fail to make me cry a bit. I feel like some things might've have a better conclusion, but I really liked it.
    And it had some very nice kissing scenes, which is rare in dramas ;p

    Aside from the shameless product placements lol what a nice and cute little drama. Lots of clichés scenes but not over the top...nothing overly dramatic. Nice pic if you want smth light and fluffy.

    I just finished watching this "drama." The series was okay and the lead couple were really good together. Also there was a lot of kissing and affection. I liked it for the most part but it bordered on being boring and it just felt like there was no plot and not much excitement at all. Don't think I'd watch it again, but I did not dislike it. Just a bit slow. I rated it an 8 out of 10.
